December 2022 Mission Briefing Your Mission, Should You Choose To Accept It!

Secret Mission Focus Of The Month – STRANGERS - Secretly Bless a STRANGER

During the month of DECEMBER, GSSA Headquarters encourages its GSS Agents to conduct secret missions to help strangers. A stranger is someone you don’t know or with whom you are not familiar with. That could be someone in your neighborhood, grocery store, on the bus, someone from another country, a homeless person, people you walk by at the mall or a fellow employee in another department at work.

Most of us encounter strangers, people that are not family, friends, or co-workers, on a regular basis as we go about our daily life. But we were trained as children by our parents not to talk to strangers. There is even a popular song by Rick Springfield that encourages us to “Don’t talk to Strangers.”

If you flip the script, you are a stranger to people who don’t know you. As humans we are often so preoccupied with our own concerns that we often don’t take the time to smile, talk to, or show kindness to people that we don’t know. Particularly at this time of year, we often get very caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. We forget that there are many strangers that are hurting who could use our love, compassion and generosity to help brighten their lives and circumstances.

Hebrews 13:1-2 (ESV) says: “Let brotherly love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” Further, Hebrews 13:16 (ESV) says: “Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”

Most of us will demonstrate heroism, altruism and selflessness in response to a suffering stranger in an emergency situation, but we often fail to display the small daily acts of kindness to strangers that will help to restore people’s faith in God and humanity.

GSS Agents, let’s change that! This month as you go through the busyness of the season and celebrate with family, friends, and co-workers, take a moment to bring some joy into the life of a stranger by secretly blessing one this holiday season. You can do so by completing one of the secret missions listed below, checking out our 25 Secret Holiday Mission Ideas Calendar or by completing one of your own to secretly bless a stranger.

- Leave money in a vending machine for the next person or pay for the food of someone behind you in the drive
